Here is a quick video tip for using the current version of the Force.com IDE to develop Chatter Apps, and access some of the new features of the v18 API available in Spring '10
It has been a few weeks since the Chatter Developer Preview was launched, and many developers are already building some pretty cool apps—this week alone we have pushed a new app each day into the Chatter Developer Zone. As developers eagerly await the release of the updated Force.com IDE, I wanted to share a tip others have already been highlighting to let you use the current version of the IDE to write Chatter apps, and access some of the features v18 of the API provides.
Lastly, if you want to learn more about developing Chatter Apps, and you are located in the Bay Area, make sure you drop by the Force.com Developer Meetup tonight. I hope to see you there!
